Making sales without cold calls

It’s been a crazy week of travel and fun! I got to spend a couple days in Miami, and the Rockies with clients, then Chris and I were off to see family and celebrate our two nieces birthday’s in Edmonton.

I have to say it was the most fun birthday party ever! A trampoline, water guns, Chris on the roof ambushing the grade 4’s. Me with water balloons holding ’em off at the gate, gummy worms, and 20 two litre bottles of diet coke and Menthos explosions! Ahhh to be 9 again. It’s been a while since I played like that and I hope you get the chance to get out and have some fun this summer. After all isn’t that what we work so hard for?

I am so proud of the 850 hard working sales people who joined me and Platinum clients Chris, Al and Steve on the “Stop Cold Calling” teleclass this week. Thanks for bearing with us all through the tech glitch! If you missed the call you can still listen to the recording at

Based on the feedback I think we can mark this call down as the best call we have ever hosted! I am excited to hear from everyone on their results. And thanks to our super star client’s who shared their success stories with the large crowd! Be sure to listen to the recording soon OK? I would love you to take advantage of the free bonus we are offering.

Finally, I’m excited to reveal a new section in our Sales Flash, dedicated to Unleashing Your Secret Sales Force! You can sign up for the Engage Sales Flash at or in the box on the left of this blog! As you know, I’m a huge proponent of speeding sales and increasing deal sizes using testimonials. So, last year we released a service to help you gather and publish customer testimonials, called TestimonialDirector. The goal of the new section is to help you with tips on using testimonials as well as helping our Testimonial Director customers get the most out of the service.

Dedicated to increasing your sales,

Colleen Francis
